Synopsis

John Hermann's fourth edition of "Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps and More" is the complete resource for any traveller to this part of Europe. Now covering more area than any previous edition, John 'King of the Alps' Hermann brings nearly 100 trips to life. Everything has been updated: Hermann's fun-to-read text has been thoroughly refreshed, with more new trips in the Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa mountain ranges, the maps now have mountain relief backgrounds to view the exciting changes in topography, and Hermann has added spectacular new pictures. Anyone considering a European trip on two wheels needs this book. Riders of all brands of bikes the world over have kept "Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps" in their tankbags ever since the first edition in 1993. And no wonder: all of the important roads and passes are described and critiqued.Every region of the Alps is covered: Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, and other special Alpine lookalike places such as Corsica, Slovenia, and the Pyrenees are included. Each trip has a detailed route description, easy-to-follow maps, and unique photographs - all brought to life by Hermann's informed and witty narration.

Local customs, history, and amusing travel anecdotes dot every page to enrich your journey.

The bible of the Alps 11. November 2008
Von R. Hutchinson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is, hands down, the best guide book for motorcycling the Alps. John writes in a very sparse manner, not intended to convince you to go there; but when on site, his words tell you what you need to know. Buy another guide to cover hotels, restaurants, and cultural attractions. This gives you the roads to travel.
Most of the routes within will not be found in other books. It is the small roads over beautiful, lonely, alpen passes that are John's specialty. Those roads will best serve someone who has gone to the trouble to be riding a motorcycle in Europe. Leave the big cities for another time, when you fly in and take a cab. You are on a bike, in the countryside, take advantage of your strengths. Head for the scenic instead of the chaotic.
By the second day out, you will be penning a letter to John in your head as you pass through some of the most glorious scenery in the world, thanking him for his good work. I say it now......Thanks John.

Great substitute for a tour guide 30. Oktober 2012
Von Peter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I bought this book 5 years ago in anticipation of taking my oldest son on a 10 day BMW motorcycle excursion through the alps as a graduation present. I KNEW the logistics of where we were going, where we were going to stay and where and what we were going to eat would make or break the trip. I considered hiring a guide to take us to the "coolest" places to see on a motorcycle in Europe but our pocketbook and rigid schedule dictated for an optional plan. The cool thing about buying books on Amazon and reading about the bio of the author is that you can search the web and find them and usually TALK to them if you want to. So I called John and said "I am going on a once-in-a-lifetime trip with my son and probably will never do this again...where do you recommend we go and what are the "must see" destinations with a limited budget and limited days on the road." John could not have been more helpful and asked great questions regarding our riding experience, time of year we would be riding in Europe (critical component) and the MUST SEE places if you go only once. I took a preloaded Garmin GPS with Johns routes and suggestions recorded to mount on the rented BMW. I love the story of us riding through Corsica (a MUST SEE on John's list) and the GPS telling us to turn up this narrow paved road outside of a small village. My son thought it must have been a mistake in routing but I assured him John recommended the turn in the book and, sure enough, we rode up to a unmarked, historic monastery which took our breathe away....not many Americans stumbled across that scene without John's years of exploration. Bottom line, we had the father/son trip I will always cherish because we stayed in clean, inexpensive hotels that John recommended, ate at the unique restaurants that he suggested and rode to the coolest parts of the Alps off the beaten path that we never would have discovered on our own....thanks again John!

Good resource for Europeans familiar with the roads, not great for others. 16. Dezember 2010
Von Matt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I purchased this book a few years ago. I cruise through the Alps every 2-3 years. The book offers good information but the organization is useless. Hermann makes a point to refer to places with local names which is great for Europeans but renders it quite useless to non-Europeans. He has some maps at the start of each chapter but they are too limited to be of any use.

For example, if you are looking to plan a route that would span a period of time for a vacation, such as a week, and if you want to cover a few countries the book will not assist in this effort at all. This is what most would use the book for - to plan a motorcycle trip. The book is designed for locals who will ride in one particular area. For example, 'Around Salzburg' you can find routes and ideas.

It takes A LOT of time to plan a route and you need maps coupled with highlighted areas from the book. I'm looking for a more usable resource for my upcoming trip.

A Motorcyclist's Guide To The European Alps 11. März 2009
Von G. R. Ransom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
The author's description of the roads and passes through the Alps is excellent. The book is well written and laid out in preset routes however, it does have a few deficiencies that prevent it from being an all-in-one Alps trip planner. The included maps lack sufficient detail, they are not suitable for route planning so, must be included for illustration only. The index does not list individual European countries, you must know where you are intending to ride in advance and then read about that area. Overall the book is a worthwhile purchase, it will make you want to ride the Alps.
Fantastic guide 21. Dezember 2013

Its a great guide ! I have been with my wife riding on the Alps on last Summer with this guide and it was great. There are so many routes and options over there. With the guide we could take the right choices to see great views and have really nice riding experiences. I am already planning my next vacations with the same book. I strongly suggest to everyone planning or dreaming about riding in the Alps.
